Job 40: 10-14
10 All right, put on your glory and splendor,
your honor and majesty.
11 Give vent to your anger.
Let it overflow against the proud.
12 Humiliate the proud with a glance;
walk on the wicked where they stand.
13 Bury them in the dust.
Imprison them in the world of the dead.
14 Then even I would praise you,
for your own strength would save you.
(Before or after reading this blog, seek the Bible for the whole truth God set before me today….Read Job Chapters 38 through 41 and Proverbs 31: 10-31)
Today God chose to reveal to me the most awesome of scriptures. Man always talks about desiring a Proverbs 31 woman for their lives, but I have never heard anything for a woman except that she needs a Man of God. A man who seeks God before he seeks her. A man straight from heaven who will treat her like a princess. One who tell her she is beautiful every morning and respect her as though she is a daughter of the King. Well, today while on a retreat with God, He showed me exactly what His desire for woman is. Job, a man after God’s own heart. A man who chose not to deny the reality of God in his life.
As I sat in the woods gazing into the eyes of Jesus, He showed me where to begin reading in the book of Job and did my eyes stay glued to every word on the page. The more I read the more mesmerized I became by what God was revealing to me. Right before my eyes was exactly how God wanted women to seek out a man for their lives. First He had me read Job 38 through Job 40:9 where He asks all sorts of questions which boiled down to this very point:
What can you do apart from Me? I have set all things in motion and you had not a part in it so why do you think you play a role in dictating your very own life? Before you were formed in your mothers womb (Jeremiah 1:5) I had your life already planned out.
As He unfolded to me this revelation I was set up for the next part He wanted me to read, the description of what a real man of God actually was: Job. If you read through the rest of the scripture I posted above, you will see a detailed outline of what a real man is suppose to be if they CHOOSE to take upon what God is offering them. All right, put on your glory and splendor, your honor and majesty. This is a direct quote for the book of Job, instructing man to take on the splendor of God and He will protect and provide for them.
If a man would just surrender and take on the splendor of God, he will flourish and become the Man of God everyone woman desires.
In this same sense, a woman should choose to become like the woman described in Proverbs 31 so that she can begin to let God have favor in her life as well. It is so simple, it seems crazy! God has this already figured out and all we have to do is follow the Bible and believe it to be true. I was so filled with joy after God revealed this truth to me. I now understand why God desires us to be in the Word daily. There is so much to learn and so many new things God wants to show us. God rewards those who diligently seek Him, today was proof of that very thing.
